His background in aeronautical engineering meant that he was used to working with aluminium, alloys and plastics. He brought this experience to his firearm designs and came up with the M16. They were a radical design at the time and once the initial bugs were ironed out, they proved to be excellent weapons. They are still the preferred weapon of the SAS and SBS and the Israeli Special Forces and are in service with over 50 armies worldwide. All deactivated weapons sold by D and B Militaria are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold a London or Birmingham proof mark and certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly.
